Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a great fondue dinner with charcuterie on the side. Busy place but we were able to get in without a reservation by going early. Definitely a great place for dinner after a full day of skiing. Attentive service. Had a good bottle of local...wine.More

The staff were friendly and their service during the evening was very good. The food was perfectly nice. However it was a small restaurant with a number of people frying their own meat in what smelt like chip shop fat. This was really unpleasant to...smell, leaving us wanting to get out as fast as possible. I wasn't able to wear the same clothes again as they smelt so bad after this occasion. I'm afraid I would not go back here for that reason alone.More

Great service. Very friendly and efficient. Fondue was excellent. It’s worth booking as it does get busy. There are other things on the menu other than fondue but it is primarily a fondue restaurant.More

We came with a group of friends here at the end of the evening for fondu. The service was good and the staff was amusing. As we were pretty late, the reservation wasn’t necessary as there was enough room. The fondu was pretty good, but...definitely not the best I have ever had... 4/5 stars, would eat here againMore

The place was nice. We arrived early so it wasn’t busy. The food was also acceptable and very quick. The head- waiter was unfriendly. The waiter(beginner), she couldn’t tell us a thing about the menu because she can’t speak English, and when the head waiter...took the order he didn’t give any information about their dishes. Pity there were worth talking about. It’s like a trend among the waiters here. To act like the customers are some kind of a “sub-person”. It’s a popular place!!! You will have other nationalities around. Don’t be rude to those who don’t speak french. Also I would not recommend you going there or reserve a table around 7pm. The place gets full and the waiting time tripled for everything. It was a mess.More

We were very lucky to walk in without a booking and they managed to fit us in for a table of 3. They were clearly busy but still gave us great service and helped us pick our food choices as I asked for recommendations. Food...was yummy. I had the rump steak and it was the best steak I have ever had and the rest of my party had the hot oil with meats and they both really enjoyed it and found it fun. It was great watching other people have the cheese too. Apologies if I have spelt their names wrong but we had servicing us Laure and a gentleman Florain (sorry if that is wrong!).More

Food might be good here. But the people working here are not friendly at all. We came with big jackets since it is warm. And asked the waiter where we could hang it. She said they didn't have anywhere to hang it. We could put...it on a chair. But the jacket is longer than that and would hit the floor. And also we were sitting in a couch. And then the waiter just left and ignored us completely. Never going here again!More

Visited 1st day of holiday and loved it so much went on the last. I've been before and always found the food and service to be excellent. First visit we had a raclette, cook your own cheese and have it with meats, potatoes and salad....Delicious stuff. Second visit we had a Swiss fondue. Absolutely fantastic. Big pot of very tasty boiling cheese with bread and potatoes to dip in. You just have to try it. Yes, it's a busy and noisy place with the tables close together. Go to the library is you like quiet. But you won't get a fondue there. Great service. Good wines to choose from and the desserts very good too. Always on my list to visit.More

The fondue was runny tasteless and they did not even bother to wash the salad it was served with (sand in every bite). The restaurant was extremely noisy. I would not recommend this restaurant.

Reviewed 10 February 2019

We had a big table of 8 people and the restaurant gladly accommodated our booking 2 days in advance. We had two rump steaks and the cepes fondue, which we accompanied by potatoes and salad (the salad was refilled as needed). The combination of the...steak and cheese was divine. Another part of the table had the meat fondue, which apparently wasn't as good. The restaurant has a low ceiling, which combined with the hot oil from the fondues, makes the place a bit foggy and will leave you with a grease smell. Service was fast and courteous, but they could definitely benefit from an extra waiter.More

This is a place where you can find decent food at a decent price in Val Thorens were most things are really expensive. You can get fondue and raclette for 25-30 euros. The service was not great but ok and the food was either great...but not bad. The price level matches the experience.More
